Oh you Turandot! You, ice princess! With your frigid heart and frozen laugh. You too will melt one day! It will hurt when your blood starts flowing again. It will sting like a thousand bee stings. And you will cry human tears, simple human tears, and you will love, just like me!
The beautiful princess Turandot has many admirers, but she does not want to get married. That’s why she comes up with a ruse. Any prince who wants to marry her must first solve three riddles. If he answers correctly, he is lucky and becomes her husband. But if he does not guess right, she will chop off his head as a punishment, and without mercy. The people are fed up with this spooky game and beg the princess to choose a sweet prince and get married. But Turandot sticks to her decision and turns more and more into an ice princess.
